When I decided it was the right time to sell, I interviewed a couple M&A advisors who specialize exclusively in my industry, but I ultimately decided to hire Jacobs Capital, and I could not be happier with that decision. I spent over 30 years building the company to be a nationally recognized leader in my industry, but it was also a family business. Two of my children and my son-in-law were in leadership positions in the business, and my youngest was in graduate school planning to come on board after graduation. In addition to understanding my business and how to best position it with buyers in my industry, the Jacobs Capital team also appreciated the importance I placed on family considerations, and helped me manage the personal side of the transaction, which was just as important to me as executing the M&A deal. They truly understand ALL aspects of what a sale means to a business owner, not just the numbers and deal terms. I highly recommend Jacobs Capital to ANY business owner considering a sale, but especially those with personal considerations that are meaningful to them.

–Jack Schaeffer, owner of largest eye care company in Alabama

We interviewed several firms before deciding to hire Jacobs Capital based on their honesty, intelligence and track record. It was critical to us that our new partner understand the heartbeat of our company and what made it so special. They understood our goals perfectly and connected us to a company that had never been on our radar before, but who perfectly fit our company’s mission and was positioned to make it stronger and better than we ever could. The fit was ideal, and it’s something we never could have found on our own. The Jacobs Capital team never dropped the ball, even once, in any way. They represented us well and facilitated such a strong relationship between us and our new partners that we still maintain a relationship with them today. Jacobs Capital was more than worth what they earned, and we would never enter into another process like this without them behind us.

– Kelly, owner of a technology enabled Internet marketing firm, Atlanta

As founders and owners of a 29-year-old family business in a small niche market, we had a limited number of potential buyers, and they had all reached out to us before we met with Jacobs Capital. Even though we knew who our buyers would be, the Jacobs team brought very tangible value to us. We had one business to sell, but our buyers were very experienced at purchasing companies like ours. Michael and Mark being at the table with us evened things out. Our buyers were experts, and we had experts now on our side as well. We felt completely supported and informed throughout our process, and in the end were beyond thrilled with the deal Jacobs negotiated on our behalf. All this was accomplished with complete confidentiality and without having to deal with rumors getting out about our sale. I whole-heartedly recommend Jacobs to all our friends who are selling their businesses. In fact, Jacobs has done four other deals for friends of ours, all of whom were equally thrilled!

– Tiffany Alley, Business Owner, Atlanta

We were contemplating selling our business but were on the fence as to when to pull the trigger. Several reputable companies approached us and showed a strong interest in buying our company. We felt confident that we could sell our company on our own. We had been very successful at growing our business, but we soon learned that selling a company is extremely complicated and time consuming and better left to professionals. Michael Jacobs and his team proved to be the perfect match for us. They listened to what we expected from the sale and exceeded our expectations. They found the perfect buyer and sold our business for much more than we could have accomplished on our own. Selling a business that you have worked all your life to build can be stressful and emotional. Michael and his team were always accessible and responsive to answer our questions and concerns. Our experience could not have been better. We sold our business just at the right time and gained life-long friendships with the folks at Jacobs Capital.
